Tried To Install New Card, monitor not responding.
Hi, i recently recieved a game as a gift and my old video card isn't strong enough to support it. It was a 64mb Geforce card. I bought a VisionTek X1300 pci video card. I went to install the card, the fan on the card starts up when i install it but it wont give me any signal on the monitor. I took it out, put my old one back in, installed the .net drivers on the cd and took it back out. Put the new one back in. No signal. Ok so i take it out once more to put the old one back in to give it another shot, and now it wont regcognize my old card now. So neither one of my cards are giving me any signal to my monitor. I finally got ahold of customer support and the only thing they told me was that i damaged my motherboard somehow while i was putting in the card! What!? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Tech is suggesting that you pressed too hard while switching back & forth & may have hurt the motherboard by bending it. This a common problem. I can only suggest that remove your old card & clean the PCI slot with canned air. Carefully reseat the old card pressing evenly downwards till the card is seated. Use a flashlight & check where the card connects to the slot. It should be level across the PCI slot. Do this while the power cord is unpluged from the PC. Plug the power back in & start the PC.
Some video cards require extra power. Your newer card may need a four pin power connector to run. Please check the instructions that came with the RADEON X1300.

When you updated your graphics card and ran CSCZ it tried to run the game from its previous setting and found they had changed. upon realizing this CSCZ may have changed its graphisc setup to your new graphics card which as you said is unsupported.
in this case all you can do is purchase a better graphics card than your old one that is on the supported graphics card list or you can re install your old graphics card. inorder to do this you would have to physically change the old graphics card back into your computer (which it sounds like youve done) and now when you run CSCZ it doesnt work? if this is the case you might have to reconfigure CSCZ to your old graphics card.
In order to do this:
it may be as as simple as checking the root file and finding a Config.exe or something to that extent that when you open it it has options on how to run the graphics for the game if this is the case change the settings and try again it should work)
It may be as thorough as un installing the game and re installing it when your old graphics card is in the tower (note this method might be tried by the new card aswell...)
NOTE make sure that if you installed your new graphics card that it has its driver installed or even try to go the manufacturers website and download a newer driver for it (if this isnt just out of the store)
The two cards(Gforce Nvidia card) might not be compatible for your
motherboard because they're for heavy graphics like playing games, and
*********** board is old that you;ve mentioned. including the
message memory range unavailable. Try using your old card with the new
actually your computer is working on the onboard video adapter.
1. connect first the monitor to the onboard video card.( do not remove the connected geforce video card.) 2. switch on the computer and press "F2" on new model computer, "Delete" on old model computer. so that you can enter to bios setup. 3. if bios setup is open; try to find the "AGP bridge configuration" (some other bios AGP B C is in chipset) by arrow up,down,side left and right) enter. 4. Find " primary graphics adapter" 5. In there, select : If Video card is "pci" connected ; select "pci" If Video card is "AGP" connected ; select "AGP" 6. press F10 to save and exit the setup. 7. after saving the configuration, disconnect power cord and transfer the monitor to the video card (Gforce). and then connect the ac power cord and then start. or switch on the computer.
Note: be sure to install the drivers of your GFORCE for optimum performance of the card.
Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
